Another ARC “POWER Initiative Application Workshop” set for January 28 in Johnson City

Johnson City will again host one of the Appalachian Regional Commission’s “POWER Initiative Application Workshops.” The next one is set for 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. January 28 at the Carnegie Hotel across from East Tennessee State University.

POWER stands for Partnerships for Opportunity and Workforce and Economic Revitalization, a congressionally-funded initiative that targets federal resources to help communities and regions that have been affected by job losses in coal mining, coal power plant operations, and coal-related supply chain industries due to the changing economics of America’s energy production.

ARC’s POWER Initiative is expected to continue in the next fiscal year, pending Congress’ final appropriation for fiscal year 2020. Meanwhile, ARC is preparing a Request for Proposals (RFP), scheduled for release in early December. Applications for funding will be due in March, 2020.
